This tea line is dedicated to the women and girls from around the way!

Each flavor is distinct and as diverse as the women who share their names. 

Read each flavor description on their individual labels. 
Growing up as a young Black girl, I never saw my name on keychains, hats or any other novelty souvenir items when my family would travel. Although my and many other names were common in our neighborhoods, (Everyone knows a Keesha!) our names were not represented in mass production.
I intend to change that by naming products for the forgotten Black girls who never got to see their name.
Keesha's Pumpkin Spice
Warm, spicy and comforting. Nothing says Fall like a cup of your favorite Pumpkin Spice blend and curling up with a book while you drink it. 

Liah's Lemon Cake
*Contains Nuts
Created for the character in an upcoming novel, this surprisingly delicious brew will remind you of your favorite lemony baked goods. Thank you, Lisette Blythe for allowing me to create a blend and I wish you all the success with your novels! 

Mika's Mulled Wine
Sensual, warm and seductive, just like Mika, this alcohol free Mulled Wined flavor blend is full of spice and bright citrus notes that dance across the taste buds.

Ms. Mattie's Chocolate Pomegranate
Dark, Warm and Sweet, just as the woman this tea is named for. The notes of fruit compliment the flavor of the cacao and create a deliciously complex brew that you will love.

Tisha's Tiramisu
*Contains Dairy and Soy
The tiramisu triple threat: black tea, coffee beans, and chocolate. Whether it's straight up, with milk or with Irish cream, have a cup of cheer and indulge in the best time of the year. Delicious as hot tea or iced tea, plain or sweetened

Makyala's Melon Balla
Sweet, fruity and delicious! This combination of honeydew, watermelon and pineapple is a surprisingly delicious hot tea but excellent over ice!
Inger's Vanilla Cake
*Contains Nuts
Reminiscent of fresh baked pound cake, this tea is caffeine free, and great at night. Red rooibos, vanilla, almond  

LaTrice's Banana Bread
Described as a warm hug in a cup, the smell of grandma's kitchen, and a guilt free dessert, this tea is one that we are especially proud of. Warm maple and vanilla combined organic banana chips and a subtle hint of spice. 
Bonita's Berry Bliss
Fruity, tart and bright, this tea uses colorful fruits and herbs to produce a delicious flavor combination. 

Winter and Willow Smore's Tea
*Contains Dairy
This tea was inspired by chilly nights and curling up by the fire. While it does not taste exactly like a warm fire toasted S'more, this brew captures the best qualities of the famous dessert. Warm chocolate, sweet marshmallow and toasted barley will surprise you!

Aisha's German Chocolate Cake
*Contains Coconut and Dairy
Chocolate, Caramel and Coconut!? So good! To capture the spirit of a good German Chocolate cake, I toast the coconut right before adding it to the blend, to ensure the toasted flavor is trapped in each bag. 

Ameenah's Apple Chai - Spicy but still sweet, this blend takes the best parts of fall and blends them together in a deliciously spicy brew.

How to use

Depending on what the item is, there are detailed instructions for usage below.

Because our products are made with organic ingredients, they do not have as long a shelf life as commercially made, mass produced products. Below, find the proper use and storage suggestions for each type of product. 

Bath Salts

If you want a truly luxurious soak, add bath salts the next time you run a bath. Leave the bath salts as they are. Store the bath salts in an airtight container and use them whenever your skin feels a little dry. You may need to shake or mix the salt if it has been sitting for some time as our blends are free from anti-clumping chemicals. Use within 1 year.

Put the plug in your bathtub and run hot water. Fill the tub halfway with water that's as hot as you like it and pour in about 1/2 cup (120 g) of prepared bath salts. For a stronger concentration, you can add more bath salts. For a therapy bath, consider using 1 to 2 cups (240 to 480 g) of salts. The high levels of magnesium in the salts can reduce muscle ache.

Use your hands to swirl the water in the tub so the salts dissolve. Fine-grained bath salts will dissolve faster than coarse-grained bath salts. Turn the hot water back on and fill the tub as high as you like. Dip your hands in the water to check the temperature. The water should be as comfortably hot as you can make it.

Body Butter

Body butter is a skin moisturizer that typically contains a solid vegetable based butter and a liquid vegetable-based oil. It's thicker than lotions and is extra effective at rejuvenating dry skin, whether used all over or only on problem patches, such as elbows and knees. The best time to apply body butter is just after your daily shower to lock in moisture and keep your skin hydrated all day.

Use within 2 years.

Take your daily shower or bath as usual. After you've finished, pat your body dry with a clean towel. Do not rub or dry yourself completely; leave a little moisture on your skin.

Apply a dollop of body butter directly to your skin -- don't use too much or your skin could get greasy. Rub it in gently, using firm, broad strokes, until the body butter is fully absorbed.

Pay particular attention to your feet, hands, elbows and knees, regions that tend to get particularly dry or calloused. Apply a second layer of body butter on these problem areas for the best results.

Apply body butter just before bedtime to help soften the skin on your hands and feet. Apply a layer of body butter, then cover up with cotton socks or gloves.

Lip and Body Scrubs

Scrubs are used as a form of mechanical exfoliation. They contain small, grainy particles that, when rubbed onto your skin remove dead skin cells and dry flaky bits. In turn, this leaves your skin soft and smooth, as opposed to rough, chapped lips. Incorporating lip scrub into your skincare routine is beneficial in many ways, but it is only effective when used correctly.

Use within 1 year.

Wet your lips/skin.

Scoop some lip scrub out of its container using your finger. Ensure your finger is clean so you don't contaminate the scrub. The amount you apply depends on how rough or flaky your lips are. Flakier lips call for a liberal amount of lip scrub, whereas relatively smooth lips require only a small amount of lip scrub to do the job.

Bath Melts

Bath melts are small, compact, distinctly shaped molds that hold butters and oils. These solid molds remain firm at room temperature. They make for a fascinating bath experience once added to the water. After being set in the water, the melting process begins, leaving the oils and butters contained within the mold’s compact form to disperse into the water, producing an abundantly moisturized, fragrant, and luxurious bathing atmosphere. 

Use within 2 years.

Run a soothing hot bath and add the bath melt to the running water. You can crumble the bath melt to speed up the dissolving process or allow it to slowly disperse. Thoroughly mix the water along with the melting oils and butters. It will completely melt into your bath and create a moisture-rich, velvety bath.

Use the entire bath melt, do not cut it into pieces.
